Drivin' You Away
Robert K. Wolf is Phat Americana. He has never been quite satisfied with coma-inducing songwriting blandness. He took his blazingly, politically, and religiously incorrect "Cross Dressing For Christmas" and became a winner in the 2003 Great American Song Contest, received airplay in numerous markets (including Washington DC drive time), and hit #4 on mp3.com. His very well-received, over-the-top-and-then-some "IntaMezo" attempted to shatter the long-held belief that hip-hop can't be performed by an overweight, Brooklyn-born Jewish guy from New Jersey squirming in the buckle of the Bible Belt. 'Drivin' You Away' is Wolf's first full-length project in seven years. It features these songs alongside a solid, gig-tested bunch of others. There's a delusional, startstruck parking attendant, a patriot to end all patriots, scores of dysfunctional personalities, and yes, some regular people. The recording features top Nashville session musicians. The basic tracks were recorded old school, onto two inch tape, in one day. A warm, vintage sound with room for the music to breathe. 'What Color Is the Sky in Your World', written with Lisa Carver, recently advanced to the next round in the 2006 International Songwriting Competition, where 14,000 submissions had been entered. It shares the story of a man in poetic, vibrant agony at the end of a relationship. 'Drivin' You Away' takes a journey through America. An insightful, lively, enjoyable trip in music, vibe, imagery, and texture.
